Although the authors come from very different traditions (respectively, philosophy of science and social psychology; medical ethics and philosophy of psychology; and linguistics), these two books make remarkably similar points. The vision they express - that psychological phenomena like emotions, memory and thought are essentially social types - is in the air, and both books provide useful articulations.
